I would like to comment on a recent letter you titled, "Republican policies wrong."
The fact is that most states with Republican governors are doing far better economically than those with Democratic governors.
If they have the luxury of Republican legislatures, all the better.
That is because most Republicans understand that people drive the economy, not government bureaucrats who want to suck the resources out of the private sector and divvy them out in a political fashion, which is what happens with government redistributive policies.
As for the proposed Ryan budget and entitlements, Congressman Ryan is on the right track.
Regardless of what you believe about Medicare and other entitlements, there will be changes in the future one way or another.
The programs are going bankrupt due to an aging society and other realities of wasteful centralized bureaucracy.
The question is, how will they change? Will they change by transitioning these programs into consumer-based models, or will we maintain the current centralized model which will result in more rationing and less care available for most citizens.
Big-government liberals can delude themselves into believing that government can dictate who should be treated and when and how much service providers can be paid, and that this system is efficient, even though it has never worked in the history of medical service delivery.
The delusion will make them feel good that "everyone is equal," but the result will be devastating for the quality and availability of care for all people.
That is, except for, maybe, the rich who will pay to go to India or some other country to get it.
